    Yeah they are limited in what they can do. At the army depot however I don't think there are many if any MP,S i think dod officers handle most serious calls and akal does mostly gate and foot patrol. I know that i was told they direct and work traffic and can issue citations but only at the depot.

    On Ft Lewis, I heard they pretty much have to call MPs for anything that happens. They had an incident not too long ago where they opened fire on a pickup truck. I guess the truck tried to hit one of the guards and SOMEHOW ended up getting away with his gun. AKAL guards opened fire on it as it was driving away from the base.

    yeah I think they have some people on the gates at whats left of Ft Mcclellan here as well and I think they man some gates at the Army Depot too. Most of those gates and all restricted areas are covred by DOD Guards or Police, I am not sure of their job title but they have certain authority to make arrests . I beleve that some of the AKAL guards could inforce certain laws pertaining to the base and have written some citations to traffic offenders. Frankly I was surprised when they showed up and started
    doing interviews, just a short while later they had people in training and some already working a couple gates. I have not been around too many of their employees but most of the ones I have spoken with were doing o.k with them.
    And were not complaining about what they had to do and so on, as many new hires do.

    Out here they have the Ft. Lewis Gate contract so you will see them at various gates. From what Ive heard is they have a good job, but the administration is horrible.

    Yeah they are pretty huge. The have some contracts at the Army depot near where I live. They also have some folks at the Federal Court building in town.
    Probably some other places too. Don't know a lot about them other than what I just wrote, I know that they initially hired many,many officers but laid a large group off after a few months, they did give them a severance package however. They also hired a few back later on when they had figured out what size crew they needed. I was told all this by a friend who went to work for them. He was part of the layoff, he could have went back to work for them but instead he was called up for duty in Irac. Just google them and there should be plenty of info.

    Akal

    I see them drive past my hospital every shift at least once, but I have never heard of them prior to seeing them over the last year, I guess I didn't realize they were a "giant."
